Dare's 'Tribes Install Thread and Troubleshooting and INTERPOLATE' thread is very useful but its a little hard to follow and has a lot of old/dead links. So i'm making a new one - but its a work in progress, i'll add stuff and fill out missing parts over time. I'll probably remember my own stuff best - so feel free to point out other stuff that you guys think should be included.

Tribes 1 FAQ:

1) Does Tribes 1 work with Windows Vista/7/8/10?
- Older versions (pre-1.40) need the 'vista' fix, otherwise your mouse won't work. http://nofix.annihilation.info/tribesfiles/VistaMem.rar (extract mem.dll to your Tribes folder)
- Plugins need a registry patch to work in 7/8/10 Tribes_win8or10_PluginFix _REG.zip


2) Why does Tribes 1 mouse input feel so slow/soupy/wrong/(janky lol)?
- T1's 'VSYNC' setting does not work, and Tribes feels very bad with VSYNC on. turn off VSYNC globally in your graphics card options. If you're only getting 60 FPS in Tribes1, you're gonna have a bad time.


3) Do i need to use a 'modern' build of Tribes, or can i use my old config?
- you can use whatever you want. afaik no servers enforce any kind of client-version requirement. some servers may show 1.41 'afterhope' users, and scan them for cheats to prove you're a 'clean' player, but its not required.
- however, modern configs may run better on modern systems - try one out, you might like it!


4) I can load up Tribes, and my mouse works fine, but I dont see any game servers? whats up?
- you probably have old/dead master servers.
-New Master Server by pancake - TribalWar Forums


5) What are 'plugins'? How do i use them?
- Plugins are community-made .dlls that make changes to Tribes, kinda like a script or mod, but usually they make changes to the actual .exe. Instead of patching the .exe manually, we use 'plugins', which we store in a /plugins subfolder

we load plugins with another .dll we usually refer to as the 'pluginloader', made by NoFiX. this 'pluginloader' is called 'rasadhlp.dll' and is placed in the /Tribes folder with the .exe. older versions of rasadhlp.dll load plugins manually by adding switches to your Tribes.exe shortcut. newer versions automatically load all .dlls stored in /plugins.


6) What is 'scriptGL' and how are scriptGL configs different?
- scriptGL is a plugin made by greyhound that allows users/scripters to draw stuff on top of Tribes. It allows more freedom to use fancy fonts and do neat graphical stuff that was hard/impossible w/o it - but scriptGL is old now and unsupported, so it may not work properly with modern graphics drivers. symptoms of this may include crashes on Tribes startup, and text or grahpical glitches that may or may not flicker. if you have trouble with scriptGL configs, use one that doesn't have scriptGL


7) What is 'interpolate' or 'NetSet' ? is it legal/acceptable?
- yes, currently interpolate or 'netset' is 'legal' and 'acceptable' - if you want to use it, use it.
- 'interpolate' and 'predictforwardtime' were controversial netcode-related settings that determine how much Tribes interpolates data between known points (leading to 'smoother' player movement) and how much Tribes tries to predict where players will be. Changing these settings from stock became viewed as a cheat, so community patches like 1.30 locked these variables. later, 1.40 was released, which had a new method of prediction - it uses your ping to dynamically determine what the 'best' net-settings are. Some people don't like these values and wanted to change them again - so NoFiX made the 'NetSet' plugin, which once again allows end-users to set their own netsettings manually.

8) When i start Tribes, i can't move my mouse/the window is flickering!
-this can happen with scriptGL configs. try a non-scriptGL config
-you may have windows text scaling set higher than 100%. to fix this issue for Tribes only (without having to go make all fonts small again), right-click Tribes.exe and then click Properties. On the Compatibility tab, select Disable Display Scaling On High DPI Settings, and then click OK. You can also try checking off 'Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP Service Pack 2'. If both those fail, try setting fonts back to 100% in your display settings (?).

Hey Groove do you still recommend your 2017 Tribes download, or have you changed a lot since then?

could you link to 1.41 somewhere directly in this thread? i just reinstalled and it's harder to find than you'd think. someone not looking for it explicitly would never know it existed much less where to get it.

yeah im sure there's lots of stuff im missing and appreciate any contributions anyone would like to make to add to the thread/faq

i put a link in and a link to the original thread, but afaik its already included in every config linked (at least all the recent ones)

if its missing from a particular config, let me know and i'll drop it in

also if you have some kind of write-up or more details or changes you'd like included, either post it here or pm me and i'll copy pasta it

could probably use a little blurb in the FAQ

gj being redundant in a 20 year old game

if you're gonna self promote at least add in the older stuff you're replacing like all the anti lag client prefs **** and all the netsettings configuration

tbh most of these configs suck compared to stock 1.41 because they have bloatware,

thank you for being open enough to editing the thread and including stock 1.41 right at the top in bold because prior to that the thread was basically a marketing attempt for your own config until opsayo told you otherwise

plasmatics stock config has always been the first and in big bold all capital letters and i didn't change anything about that

afaik i linked every config i could find and asked people to suggest ones that i missed. if you have any that you'd like added, just let me know - they're arranged by release date so there's no prioritization of one persons config over another

my faq explains that scriptGL is old unsupported and i labeled all the scriptGL configs to dissuade people from using them

my 3 'basic' configs and the grey config (the ones i personally recommend when asked) have very minimal scripting, barely anything more than a stock config and sometimes even less.

afaik all my configs have netset installed and working AND i included an FAQ question about netset

and im more than glad to add anything that people suggest, so if you have specific things you want changed or added, as i said just paste me what you want in there and i'll do it but i haven't played T1 in like 2+ years so dont expect me to proactively write new content or essays about the best netsettings etc (even tho ive probably spend 2-5 hours every week for the last 10 years helping people with netset - its literally the most common question i get and the vast majority of people are using completely broken settings).

but i'd be glad to paste in whatever you or anyone else writes on whatever topic that you think would be helpful to new players. feel free to write new FAQ's or long detailed explanations of things and i'll put them wherever you want them.

If that isn't dare it is prob one of the SA members he warned us about. We should ban these accounts according to dare.
